Here it is...
You require the following ingredients:
1 1/3 cup joshinko (rice flour. Or you can get rice flour and grind it, but it must be ground just enough so it's as a flour. Any wheat grinder would work well. Just use the electronic one. I did it by hand and it hurts>>)
Making the rice dumplings:
Put rice flour in a bowl and add warm water. Knead the dough well (or just use a metal spoon if you want to). Make small round dumplings (the size of rubber balls). Place the dumplings in a (vegetable) steamer and steam them on high heat for 10 min. Cool the dumplings and skewer them in bamboo sticks. (3-4 dumplings each stick.)
Making the sweet sause:

SCIENTIFIC FACTS IN THE BIBLE We'll be adding the spanish version soonSCIENTIFIC FACTS IN THE BIBLE7 years ago in Personal More Like This
GENESIS 1:1,3 (written 3,450 years ago): "In the beginning God created the Heaven and the earth . . . And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters."
Science expresses the universe in five terms: time, space, matter, power and motion. "In the beginning (time) God created (power) the Heaven (space) and the earth (matter) . . . And the Spirit of God moved (motion) upon the face of the waters." .
GENESIS 2:1 (after creation): "Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them."
The Hebrew word used here is the past definite tense for the verb "finished," indicating an action completed in the past, never again to occur. The creation was "finished" -- once and for all. That is what the First Law of Thermodynamics says. It states that neither matter nor energy can be either created or destroyed. There is no "creation" ongoing today. It is "finished" exactly as the Bible states.
GENESIS 3:15: "And I will put e

Exposing the 'Shadowland Wolf Foundation and quotI posted this before on AW's comment section, but I'd like to bring it to the attention of a wider audience, as it does appear that this obviously fraudulent organisation has quite a large following, and its representatives have appeared on chat shows to lecture people on the subject of wolves, which I hope this blog entry will demonstrate they have absolutely no qualifications to do so.Exposing the 'Shadowland Wolf Foundation and quot2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Idaho Wolf Bill - DEADUPDATE #2: Siddoway withdrew the wolf bill this morning and shelved it at the Natural Resources and Environment Committee where it will remain, although not indefinitely. The reason for him withdrawing the bill was due in part to harassment but mainly because he feared that wolves taken from his bill would cause the wolves to get relisted. The IDFG had warned that those wolves killed might have gone beyond their 2002 Wolf Plan*, which is essentially the basis for how many wolves they have/don't have in order to be federally listed.Idaho Wolf Bill - DEAD3 years ago in Personal More Like This
UPDATE #1: Siddoway's wolf bill has passed the Idaho Senate floor on a 7-2 party-line vote. Now all that is left is another committee consideration and final passage in the second house. After both houses agree on the bill, and no amendments need to be made, it will be sent to the Governor to be signed into law (although most bills do not become law until January 1st of the following year).
A bill was introduced to the Idaho panel a few weeks ago by t

Oh yeah, I did - RANT about Avril Lavigne's songA blog I follow just posted a gif from that song by Avril, called 'Girlfriend'. We all remember this, I believe, it was a big hit.Oh yeah, I did - RANT about Avril Lavigne's song3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But seriously, both song AND video are so absolutely cruel and egocentric that I can do nothing but roll my eyes when ever I see/hear it.
Avril is bitching. That's pretty much it, she's bawwwing about how she wants a dude who - that's right - already has a girlfriend.
She's his girl. He allowed her to be his girl, therefore, gee, I don't know, MAYBE he loves her! Maybe she's a really sweet and kind girl, why else would he date her?
But no, don't you dare to think that, because Avril knows what the girl is really like.
Let's see a few statements she makes during the song.
She's like so whatever
What's that supposed to mean? That she's boring?
Well, at least she's not boasting her ego through 50% of the song, while bitching about Avril in other 50%.
No. the girlfriend is so whatever, while Avril is a motherfucking princess,

KINGDOM OF DAWN: CHAPTER 1Chap. 1: To Find A DragonKINGDOM OF DAWN: CHAPTER 13 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sehtmeht scratched his neck as his ears went flat against his head. His black robe flowed from behind him as he paced his tower floor. So many leads and all of them were dead ends. He needed to find them, and he needed to find them soon.
Umbra, his assistant, was laying down watching her master worry himself to a massive wreck. She lowered her head onto her paws and tucked her wings in close as she gave a sigh.
This was not the first time Sehtmeht tore himself apart over a legend, but this so-called legend was based more in fact than a fairy tale told to hatch-lings. This legend was centered on two very real dragons that disappeared after defeating a mighty enemy… and her master was close to finding one of them.
Sehtmeht stopped pacing and was now hovering over a table with various books, scrolls, and maps, his ears still flat against his head. Umbra walked over to him, her black body reflecting the glow from the light crystal that illuminated the room.
No Unsacred Place: A Call for Urban GreeningA while back, I read this article on a community who came together to green a formerly filthy, crime-ridden alley in an impoverished neighborhood. Funded by a grant, one resident got the ball rolling on transforming the alley into a sustainable garden. This in turn invited other residents to participate, and eight years after the effort was begun the alley is now an urban oasis with loads of food-producing plants and flowers.No Unsacred Place: A Call for Urban Greening2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The effects have been pretty dramatic. Apart from the physical overhaul of the alley itself, the people living along it now feel more comfortable spending time outdoors among the green, growing things. Being outdoors has a number of psychological health benefits, and given that

The Truth about the Candice Berner caseRead it and weep, those who defended the wolf's conduct. The full facts of the case have finally been released. Wolves were the culprits. No, they were not really hybrids, or rabid, or acting in self defence.The Truth about the Candice Berner case3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've organised this entry in a way responding to all the questions which, until now, had been left unanswered. Questions are written in normal font, while the segments of the report are in italics.
1. Were wolves regularly hunted prior to the attack? (Hunting wolves is the time-proven method of keeping wolves fearful of humans)
Human use of wolves in the Chignik Lake area is low. Mandatory sealing documented the harvest of a few wolves during the last decade, but no wolves have been sealed in recent years. p.6
2. Were there any other animal tracks on the scene? (Coyote, mountain lion, bear, dog etc.)
Animal tracks along the sides of the road and in the area of the attack were identified as wolf tracks based on the size of individual tracks. Although
